Virtual Assessment Center

A virtual assessment center is a fully online simulation of a traditional assessment center, which replicates real-life workplace situations to evaluate participants’ skills and behaviors in a controlled environment to make crucial hiring decisions and develop and identify organizational talent. Designed to measure multiple skills and competencies, virtual assessment centers use a combination of exercises, activities, tests, role-plays, simulators, interviews, etc., in the digital format, administered individually or in groups.

Virtual assessment centers, also known as e-assessment centers, are administered online, optimally utilizing new-age technologies to achieve comprehensive and efficient results without compromising the process’s credibility and effectiveness. Virtual assessment centers deploy a complete suite of online tools to match employees to a particular role, defined by a specific set of competencies. Virtual assessment centers are instrumental in the remote work setting to keep employees motivated by investing in their upskilling and development.
